One of the key attributes to safely and successfully surviving the wild is to know when to lead and more importantly when not to. I figured this out while leading a group of 35 students to scale the Kedarkantha Peak standing tall at 14,000 ft.

“Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine.”  – Chris Hadfield
